Swerve: Environmentalism, Feminism, and Resistance (Blue Light Press)

A new book of poems forthcoming in January

“In the world we are in now, and the harrowing world to come, we need poems as guides, and as resistance to the forces that would corrupt and diminish us. For some time now, Ellery Akers has been crafting these necessary poems. Swerve is a book that confronts the primary issues of the 21st century with insight and candor, along with hope and courage.”

Joseph Stroud, author of Everything That Rises and Of This World: New and Selected Poems

“True and brave… I have just discovered a remarkable book.”

Kathleen Dean Moore, environmental activist and author of Piano Tide and Wild Comfort
